New to the site
« on: October 10 2020, 10:32:50 PM »
New here from Nebraska. A little about myself, I have owned an 84 T-Type 1988-1990, 87 GN 1998-2000 and an 86 GN from 2003-2006. As life got in the way the cars had to go for other things. Now that life has settled down I have another 87 GN. It is all original with 91,00 miles. I have just begun to refurbish/restore the car as everything needs attention. I am almost done with the underside & suspension from the firewall back. Next spring the engine/trans will come out to finish the suspension and address all the oil leaks these cars are famous for. I was excited to find this site as I have forgotten what I once knew about these cars. Sadly there is no one in my area to turn to for advice anymore. I will be asking questions as I move along in this process. I am looking to build a mostly stock cruiser. Happy to be here.

It will come back quickly.  the cars are actually pretty simple, but things can get contradictory and confuse you.

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.
